is this drill reversible

Asked by: glanethug
Yes, it is reversible. It also easy to use. I made a bird feeder post and a planter post using my impact driver and drill for the first time. I have had many compliments. Not bad for a 67 year old!

Description Error

The Home Depot website indicates there is only a forward switch (assumed to mean there is no reverse direction). The owners manual available at this location indicates there is a reverse function for this drill.

Perhaps I'm asking a stupid question, but what is the largest diameter drill bit that this drill can handle? Can it accommodate a 1/2" drill bit?
Asked by: julie
The largest Drill Bit Shank Size is 3/8" I have tried larger drill bits with reduced shank size. Doing so nearly burned up an electric motor. Different brand.

How do you replace the chuck? I have the holding screw loosened, but can't un-screw the chuck from the drill as there is no way (I can see) to lock the motor in place so that the chuck can be un-screwed.
Asked by: MarkD
Check the parts diagram. Some drill chucks have a left hand thread center screw that must be removed. After the center screw is removed secure the short end of an Allen wrench in the jaws. Next strike the Allen wrench with a plastic mallet to unscrew the chuck.
